Twitter thugs beware: your digital muscle can land you behind bars. A 19-year-old Ohio resident was arrested Monday (April 16) for attacking someone after a Twitter beef got out of hand. Tashay D. Edwards had her friend tape the altercation, which ended up going viral on WorldStarHipHop, turning her into the latest short-lived Internet star. What she probably didn’t count on was getting arrested, yet judging by her mug shot, she’s likely unfazed by the whole thing.
In the one-minute video, Edwards shows up at the victim’s house, claiming that she’s not interested in fighting—but was dressed like she was ready for a battle. After punching the girl in the face, the teen stomps, then drags the victim down the steps by her hair, before a friend intervenes.
The person on the receiving end of the brutal beat down hasn’t been identified by police, but according to Twitter, she goes by the name NeeNee, and doesn’t seem to be upset that over 2 million people witnessed her catching an epic fade. “So apparently iGot my a– whopped on WORLDSTAR and my Followers and Mentions been RISING since! FOLLOW MEEEE !” she wrote in her Twitter bio.
Edwards was charged with assault and violation of a temporary protection order. Somebody needs to teach her that being a trending topic on Twitter is not a solid life goal.
